I-Psk31 is a modem application for HF ham radio, using Bpsk31 coding/decoding.
You can connect your I-Pod Touch by using an hearphone and mic directly to transceiver, or by a digital mode interface.
Using the waterfall tune your radio on the right frequency, and soon you'll receive data.

Easy operation minded for portable purposes.

What's New in Version 2.2
Added Macros (9) .Increased rx lines width to 50,fixed minor bugs. PLEASE double tap on spectrum to access macros.
Interesting, But Needs Work
Built an isolated receive interface for my FT-817ND using the headphone port and got good signals on the waterfall. However, on the small iPhone screen, it is very hard to position the slider just right to decode a signal. Almost easier to tune the radio until you get good copy. It might work better with an iPad, but not everyone has one.
This app has a long way to go before it will replace a PC-based PSK-31 program. Here are several suggestions:
* Add an AFC feature like DM-780 or add some buttons to move the cursor a small amount at a time. It is very hard to move the cursor by hand and lock onto a signal.
* Add a way to minimize the keyboard without hitting send.
* Add a way to close the macro screen without hitting send.
* Add some sort of level indicator to help in adjusting the audio in to get good copy.
* English help / hints, please.
This app Works well with a little practice
It gets a little getting used to. Only had it for a day but used headphones on my radio and rubber-banded the earbuds from the iPhone to the mike . Received fine with a little effort had to learn how the tune but tuned fine. Manually ran the radio into xmit . Did not make any contacts but it was clear the app would work fine with a little practice.
In the 2012 May QST there is a droid interface for PSK31 that may well work with the iphone also .
Amazing app. Took time to find macros. Keep working on it. Info page/mini manual would be good. Macro that can take in a cq call by clicking on it would be good too. Good work!!!
